Jeb Butler, Matt Kahn, Morgan Lyndall, and Tom Giannotti made this year’s list in the Personal Injury General: Plaintiff category after demonstrating “excellence in the practice of law.” The award is a testament to all the hard work our lawyers do on behalf of our clients and our dedication to the Atlanta community.
Butler, Kahn, Lyndall, and Giannotti received their awards after an extensive selection process. Initial nominations are made by peers in the legal community, as well as by certain third parties. Once the initial nominees are selected, each lawyer is evaluated based on 12 categories of professional achievement and peer recognition.
These categories include:
- The verdicts and settlements a lawyer has won
- What other professional honors and awards they’ve received
- Whether they have any special licenses or certifications
- Their overall legal experience
- How they’ve contributed to the local community
- Any scholarly lectures or writing they’ve done
Following this evaluation, candidates with the highest point totals will join a blue-ribbon panel to evaluate other high-scoring candidates who serve in their same practice area. Once the panel has completed their task, the awards are handed out. The top 5 percent of candidates are named Super Lawyers, while the top 2.5 percent of lawyers who are younger than age 40 or have less than 10 years of experience are named Rising Stars.
The team at Butler Kahn is immensely proud of this prestigious honor our attorneys have received. If you’d like to find out more about our legal services, call our Atlanta office or visit our contact page for a free initial consultation.
